Subject: Ordinary people and the Camel Quiz
Poor quality video and audio. 24 minutes of ordinary people talking about Camel. Also, the Camel Quiz: how big, how tall, how fast… Featuring a fashion designer, dog trainer, chef, fashion illustrator, a catchy jingle ("More people smoke Camels").

The Camel Quiz explains interesting facts about elephants, kangaroos, humming birds, eagles, whippets, turtles and so on.

One sequence explores the rationing of cigarettes in 1944.

Subject: How things have changed
Isn't it amazing how things have changed so much in 50 years? It used to be cigarettes were all the rage, then cigars, now what? E Cigarettes I guess. This site seems to think they're the next big thing at least: I don't know if I'm convinced yet though. I think everyone should take some time off and look into them more. Wikipedia of course has a bunch of information of e cigarettes. I hope they don't turn into the next "cigarettes" and start harming people.
